Comparative newcomers to the Italian motorcycle scene, the Castiglioni brothers’ Cagiva concern established itself in the late 1970s when it purchased the Harley-Davidson-owned Aermacchi factory at Varese. Its first motorcycles were two-strokes, but in 1985 upstart Cagiva purchased long-established Ducati in a move which ensured the latter’s survival and broadened the range of its own models. Sports and sports-touring machines continued to be badged as Ducatis, while Cagiva made use of Ducati powerplants in a range of stylish off-road bikes. The W16 trail bike of 1994 however, used the 604cc version of Cagiva’s own power unit. First introduced in 1988 in 350cc form, Cagiva’s air-cooled four-valve single would find its way into a number of different models including the River and Canyon roadsters. In W16 specification this heavily over-square motor produced 34bhp at 5,000rpm, which was good enough for a top speed of more than 90mph. Power was transmitted via a five-speed gearbox, while electronic ignition, disc brakes and an electric starter were other noteworthy features. This superb W16 has enjoyed only one owner from new and is presented in ‘ready to ride’ condition. Always garaged and subject to light use only, it has covered a mere 1,500-or-so miles in total. The machine is offered with its original sales invoice and instruction manual (the latter still in its wrapper), current MoT and Swansea V5 registration document, and will have been freshly serviced and fitted with a new battery immediately prior to sale.
